Coating additives are added to paints and coatings to enhance their quality and efficiency. It allows the surfaces to deal with higher temperature, moisture, chemicals, abrasion, and others. Technological improvements in VOC coating are anticipated to construct good market demand thereby towards sustainability & environmentally friendly products are expected to yield market of low-VOC coating additive over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific expected to hold the largest market share owing to the increasing demand in countries, such as the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The increased financial growth in the growing nations is expected to boost the market growth in the next few years. Also, rising end-user enterprises such as automotive, packaging, and construction are boosting the low VOC coating additives market in the region.

COVID Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 outbreak has affected various industries worldwide. Governments across the world implemented strict lockdown measures and social distancing norms in order to restrict the swift spread of the pandemic. Manufacturing facilities around the world were shut down during the initial stages of the pandemic. Moreover, the economic crisis after the pandemic might lead to a significant delay in the commercial roll-out of the Low-VOC Coating Additive Market. Small and medium-scale companies are the backbone of technology providers and are witnessing a steep drop in revenue since the emergence of the pandemic in 2020. Hence, market players faced numerous challenges as disruptions in the supply chain were observed. However, things will improve in the second half of 2022 as more supplies will come online.
